About Amanda
Hello!

Yoga and meditation have been in my life for ten years. After training and being certified with a Yoga Alliance school, I started teaching six years ago. I love teaching beginners and using therapeutic modifications to safely engage with injuries.

Yoga is a practice that can offer many gifts. The movements and other practices, like mindful breathing and guided meditation, bring stress-relieving benefits, no matter what practice level or time commitment.

If you would like testimonials, please be in touch. I look forward to helping you on your journey with Yoga.

Amanda

I wanted someone to help me with alignment and to give me some poses for areas I was trying to open up. Amanda came prepped with a routine and gave me some great alignment tips that I am still using. She also sent me an email with the routine and instructions the next morning. She was very thoughtful and did a great job.

About Andrea
Hi! My name is Andrea and I can't wait to meet you!

I've been teaching my skills of releasing psychic pain and depression since 2013. I love watching the light begin to shine in the eyes of my students as they realize just how easy it's going to be to find their heart's delight after years of going down the wrong roads.

For example, a divorcee had lost hope, unable to find a loving relationship for around 10 years. After 2-3 consults with me, she found her dream mate and they've been together for 3 years now.

Another student reached out to me for obsessive-compulsive behavior that was ruining her life. She said she saw something special about me that she could never find with a therapist. After only 4 visits, she'd made massive progress, and called to say, "Hey, Andrea, I just want to let you know that my whole day started out b
eautifully! I feel so good and clear. You really pulled out all the stops to help me -- thank you!!" For the next few lessons, we plumbed deeply-rooted causes for many of her anxieties and released them in very thorough and life-changing ways. She's about to start having the best years of her life because of the work she's done.

Both these ladies were willing to do the work (which can be fun!) of uncovering the beautiful life that was awaiting them all the time. If you're ready, or even considering, please feel free to send me a question and let's get you the answers you're looking for. :)

Andrea is AWESOME. She is very open minded, good listener, askes great questions, has awesome homework assignments, so I was able to find my own answers. She came to my house, but can also work on line or on the phone. For me she helped me accomplish goals, as she is a real cheer leader. I needed that.

I highly recommend Andrea, but be careful; you may doing something you always dreamed about, but were afraid to do it.

Andrea is a loving, compassionate, experienced, and wise life coach. I was in a professional situation where I felt a lot of discomfort. It was hindering my forward progress. I felt frustrated and stuck. Andrea was able to offer me the tremendous gift of a space completely free of judgement, where I could be transparent and authentic in the process. As a result of a particular tool and technique of her coaching, I left feeling smarter, stronger and better equipped to move forward. That session was the beginning of one of the best years I have ever had. Thanks Andrea!

Andrea is a natural coach. She is patient, intuitive and wise beyond her years. She listens deeply and observes, then illuminates what lies beneath the surface that can hold us back or move us forward using focus wheels. She helped me build the confidence and clarity I needed in relationships and career. Thank you, Andrea.

About Jennifer
I have been teaching and tutoring since 1996. I have worked with students in areas of writing, internet research, and public speaking. I was also a school teacher for several years, and was very effective in teaching reading through phonics and site words, using real life situations such as creative expression through writing and dialog to make learning more meaningful.

My approach to tutoring is collaborative with the student, regardless of age or academic level. Writing and critical thinking skills are developed by brainstorming, drafting, and identifying opportunities to construct thoughts into meaningful written contact. I keep tutoring fresh and interesting, gradually introducing higher level concepts (i.e. figurative language) as the tutoring process becomes more advanced.

In addition to teaching and tutoring experience, I h
ave also worked as an Administrative Assistant over the years. This gave me the opportunity to learn the Microsoft Office Suite, including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. I teach these as well, as they relate to helping students with the writing and organizational process.

I have a business website for my pet grooming service. Jennifer helped me devise content for the site that gets my message across effectively and succinctly. She helped me determine what really needs to be said vs. what might look nice, but that might be redundant. I was able to shorten my draft without losing any quality of content.

About Brandy
Hi, there! My name is Brandy and I am so excited to meet with you! I've been teaching preschool the last two years and have been tutoring, mentoring, and training others for about 20 years off and on! I started out tutoring German to high school and college students, then English to college and elementary students while in Spain. I went to university first in Spain, then cane back stateside and received a dual degree Spanish and German from Indiana University. I'm a highly creative person who loves linguistics, traveling, and all things Disney. I'm also very experienced in how to adapt to life with food allergies. My son and I both have life threatening allergies and I'm very adept at manuevering through the grocery aisles and restaurant menus seeking out safe foods (we have about a dozen food allergies between us). My cooking and food
based classes are intended for those with food allergies who need help adjusting to a new food life and modifying their diets.
Let's get learning!

About Amanda
Hi! I'm Amanda! Meet me here: https://youtu.be/vXQSDJpnXkU

Want a teacher who knows what they're doing? You've found her! I'm a PhD student studying Linguistics: Second Language Acquisition. I have mastered and use only the best and most current ways to learn languages based on today's research in my sessions! Plus, I always make sure we have a lot of fun and laughs too!

I'm a recent English instructor at the English Language Institute of the University of Florida teaching students of all ages. I've taught French at the Ohio University to undergraduates. I've been teaching since 2006, so if you're looking for someone with experience and know-how, that's me!

My first experience teaching was through France's TAPIF program where I was given over 200 students, aged 6-12, and a long list of words and phrases and told to do my best! Si
nce then my teaching style has evolved along with the current findings in Second Language Acquisition research. I focus on aiding students in lowering foreign language anxiety through building student agency and perceived self-efficacy. This leads to increased true self-efficacy and improved academic outcomes (Bandura, 1986). What does all this mean? I help students engage in directed discovery learning, provide explicit instruction when necessary, and methodically review in ways that encourage deep learning and high retention rates. Because foreign language anxiety is lowered, authentic communicative activities are painless in my lessons and prepare the student for real world situations.

As an instructor, I play the role of a coach. I enable students to focus on their goals and hold them accountable to accomplishing them. I promote student agency and allow students to make choices about their own learning; this way each lesson fits their individual needs and differences. Before being a teacher, I was a success coach for college students. Not only will you learn your target language from me, but also the metacognitive and self-regulatory skills necessary to get ahead in life, your career, and academia! Who else offers that?

Overall, I am passionate, dedicated, outgoing, sometimes silly, and, above all, motivating. I work hard as a student and instructor, always giving 110%. Sign up for a trial lesson and let's make an action plan together! It's time to reach your goals!

I look forward to working with you!

My yoga practice has freed me physically and mentally. Growing up, I experienced back pain from scoliosis. Yoga, not surgery, was my medicine. It has challenged me to seek comfort in discomfort in any new situation. I hope to share these same gifts with you. I strive to make my classes unique with an emphasis on core control. My style ranges from upbeat, dynamic flows to passive stretching poses. I have taught vinyasa and yin (deep stretch) classes for the past 3 three years. In July 2014, I obtained my 200- Registered Yoga Teacher certification from Clayton Yoga. I have taught a range of clients for over 3 years in gyms, corporate settings, and studios.
